See for yourself: post-ICE raid on Postville, IA

It will take 5 1/2 minutes of your lifetime to watch this report:



Iowa's a small state; so, I know Sr. Mary. We need comprehensive immigration reform. The Washington Post covered the raid with a story and slideshow. "Why," the townspeople ask, "does the government target the workers and not the company?" To date no charges have been filed against Agriprocessors (that I know of). Meanwhile the union claims that important witnesses in a suit filed against the company (because it allegedly hired children!) are being deported. Cooincidence?

Living in Iowa now, I'm privy to info about the raid that doesn't hit the press. Use this address to donate to feed the families that are taking sanctuary in St. Bridget's Church:

I'll keep you posted on Postville.
